    XTAL headset from VRgineers wins Red Dot for outstanding design quality

    Prague/Los Angeles, March 26, 2020 – The Red Dot Jury has made its decision: XTAL VR headset emerged victorious from the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2020 and won a Red Dot for its good design quality. This means that VRgineers in cooperation with Jakub Stedina design studio is one of the winners in the world’s most renowned design competition. 

    Triangle grid as the main motif

    For more than 60 years, the Red Dot Award has been providing a platform for designers and companies to assess good design for their outstanding products.  

    XTAL is a complex device that connects several areas – electronics, ergonomics, construction, algorithms or optics. It is possible that they mediate immersion, that is, credibility. XTAL brings virtual reality which is much closer to the real world. “It is like magic because XTAL headset brings truly crystal clear view and the challenge for us was how to translate what you can see inside to the design of the product,” said Marek Polčák, CEO and co-founder of VRgineers and continue: “We tried to create design focusing on maximum simplicity with a crystal motif.”

    “During the designing process, we decided to use the triangle grid as the main motif. The reason was simple – triangles are the core of computer graphics as well as virtual reality and for us represent crystal structure,” said Jakub Stedina, a designer from Stedina Design Studio. 

    The name XTAL also refers to the appearance of glasses that resemble a crystal. There was also a simple language explanation behind the idea: Crystal glasses could be called XTAL, like Christmas being shortened to Xmas.

    VR brýle XTAL získaly prestižní Red Dot Award za design

    Praha / Los Angeles, 26. března 2020 – Porota Red Dot se rozhodla: brýle pro virtuální realitu XTAL se staly vítězem letošního ocenění Red Dot Award: Product Design 2020. Společnost VRgineers ve spolupráci s designovým studiem Jakuba Stediny tak nově patří mezi vítěze v nejznámější designérské soutěži na světě.

    Trojúhelníková mřížka jako hlavní prvek designu

    Již více než 60 let je cena Red Dot Award platformou pro designéry a společnosti, které vytváří originální produkty.

    XTAL je komplexní zařízení, které spojuje několik oblastí – elektroniku, ergonomii, konstrukci, algoritmy či optiku. Jejich hlavním úkolem je zprostředkovat imerzi, tedy uvěřitelnost. XTAL přináší virtuální realitu, která je mnohem blíže skutečné realitě. „Je to jako kouzlo, protože XTAL přináší tak křišťálově ostrý obraz, že pro nás bylo velkou výzvou přenést to, co vidíte uvnitř brýlí do designu produktu,“ říká Marek Polčák, CEO a spoluzakladatel společnosti VRgineers.

    „Během procesu navrhování designu jsme se rozhodli použít jako hlavní motiv trojúhelníkovou mřížku. Důvod byl jednoduchý – trojúhelníky jsou jádrem počítačové grafiky i virtuální reality a symbolizují krystalicky čistou a kvalitní strukturu, “ říká Jakub Stedina, designér ateliéru Stedina Design..

    Také samotný název XTAL má úzkou vazbu na krystal. Za pojmenováním byla jednoduchá slovní hříčka – Crystal můžeme zkráceně označit za XTAL, jako se často Vánoce v anglicky mluvících zemích zkracují z Christmas na Xmas.

    Revoluční Fata Morgana umožňuje virtuální teleportaci, Škoda JS ji testuje i v Temelíně

    26. listopadu 2019, Praha – Profesionální brýle XTAL pro virtuální realitu od česko-americké společnosti VRgineers se staly nedílnou součástí projektu Fata Morgana. Revoluční technologie kombinuje rozšířenou a virtuální realitu a umožňuje virtuální teleportaci a sdílení prostoru po celém světě.

    Díky softwarové platformě Fata Morgana se nyní můžete ve vteřině virtuálně ocitnout kdekoli na světě. Fata Morgana vám umožní v reálném čase vytvořit virtuální kopii fyzického prostředí a sdílet ji i s více uživateli (vzdálenými experty) na druhém konci světa. To vám nabízí možnost s nimi komunikovat na konkrétním místě bez ohledu na jejich geografickou polohu. Virtuální nástroje umožňují ve fyzickém prostoru i jeho kopii měřit, sdílet data, ale také vkládat augmentované 3D a jiné modely do obou prostředí.

    Technologii vyvíjenou českým start-upem Pocket Virtuality na hardwarové straně doplňují VR brýle XTAL a AR brýle Microsoft Hololens. Fata Morgana je využitelná širokým spektrem průmyslových odvětví od energetiky a stavebnictví, přes průmysl chemický či automobilový až po záchranné systémy, kde umožňuje spolupráci více lidí na jednom místě během krátkého okamžiku a s nízkými náklady.

     Jak to funguje? Podívejte se na naše video.

    Na jedné straně například zaměstnanec elektrárny v brýlích MS Hololens prochází fyzické prostředí, které se automaticky rekonstruuje v 3D a přenáší na servery. Ty získaná data zpracují a vytvoří z nich virtuální kopii onoho prostředí, do níž může vstoupit neomezené množství “vzdálených expertů” z různých koutů světa. Všichni připojení uživatelé (ve VR i fyzickém prostředí) pak navzájem vidí své “avatary”.

    Systém funguje online i offline, a umožňuje tak rovněž asynchronní komunikaci v případě špatného internetového spojení či nutnosti spolupráce v rozdílných časových pásmech.

    Díky uživatelsky přívětivému prostředí můžete přímo ve sdílené virtuální realitě:

    • kopírovat a vkládat obrázky a videa ve vysokém rozlišení
    • porovnávat, měřit a v reálném čase spolupracovat s kolegy na místě
    • dělat si poznámky, psát vzkazy a zprávy, sledovat plnění úkolů a chatovat s kolegy
    • vybírat, vkládat a porovnávat nákresy a 3D modely do virtuální reality

    Na druhém konci světa mohou koordinátoři ve VR brýlích např. XTAL od společnosti VRgineers řídit, monitorovat a nahrávat veškerou uživatelskou aktivitu. Díky holografickému stolu mají dokonalý přehled o komunikaci, pozici jednotlivých účastníků i sdíleném virtuálním prostředí.

    O společnosti Pocket Virtuality

    Pocket Virtuality je český start-up vyvíjející technicky náročné, unikátní aplikace pro rozšířenou a virtuální realitu na vlastní platformě server – klient (Fata Morgana) pro řadu průmyslových odvětví (např. strojírenství, automobilový průmysl či energetika), tzv. chytrá města a medicínu.

    O společnosti VRgineers

    VRgineers, Inc. je česko-americká společnost pro virtuální realitu, která vyvíjí a vyrábí špičkové zařízení VR pro podniky na profesionální úrovni. Platforma headsetů s vysokým rozlišením je využívána klienty v automobilovém průmyslu, architektuře, průmyslovém designu a školení, což jim umožňuje transformovat jejich práci pomocí VR. Společnost má centrálu v Praze a kancelář v Los Angeles.

    Škoda JS testing revolutionary Fata Morgana AR+VR teleportation in Nuclear Power Plant Temelín

    Prague, November 26, 2019 – XTAL, virtual reality headset for professionals invented by a Czech-American company VRgineersis is now part of the Fata Morgana Project. Revolutionary technology combining AR and VR and allows virtual teleportation and share remote locations all over the world.

    With Fata Morgana software, you can now be anywhere in the world instantaneously. Fata Morgana allows you to create a virtual copy of the physical environment in real-time and share it with multiple users (remote experts) across the world. This gives you the ability to communicate with them at a specific location, regardless of their geographical location. Virtual tools allow you to measure, share data in physical space and a copy of it, as well as embed augmented 3D and other models in both environments.

    Technology developed by Czech start-up Pocket Virtuality on the hardware side is complemented by VR headset XTAL and AR headset Microsoft Hololens. Fata Morgana can be used in a wide range of industries from energetics and construction, through the chemical or automotive industries to rescue systems, allowing multiple people to work together in one place in a short time and at a low cost.

    How does it work? Watch our video.

    On the one hand, for example, a power plant employee in MS Hololens headset goes through a physical environment that is automatically reconstructed in 3D and transmitted to servers. They process the acquired data and create a virtual copy of that environment into which an unlimited number of “remote experts” from different parts of the world can enter. All connected users (in VR and physical environment) then see each other’s “avatars”.

    The system works both online and offline and also allows asynchronous communication in case of poor internet connection or necessity of cooperation in different time zones.

    With a user-friendly environment, you can directly in a shared virtual reality:

    • copy and paste high-resolution images and videos
    • compare, measure and interact with colleagues in a real-time
    • take notes, write messages, track tasks and chat with colleagues
    • select, insert and compare blueprints and 3D models to the VR environment

    On the other side of the world, remote coordinators can in VR headset, for example, XTAL from VRgineers manage, monitor and record user activity. The holographic tables offer a perfect overview of communication and a shared virtual environment.

    About Pocket Virtuality

    Pocket Virtuality is a Czech start-up developing technically challenging, unique applications for augmented and virtual reality on its own server-client platform (Fata Morgana) for a number of industries (eg engineering, automotive or power engineering), smart cities and medicine.

    VRgineers and Precismo Simplify the Digitalization of Retail Products for VR Product Placement and Shopping

    Combining the XTAL VR headset with Precismo scanning technology, brands can now quickly and cost-effectively digitize retail products for product placement and virtual shopping in VR

    LOS ANGELES and PRAGUE, July 23, 2019 – VRgineers, makers of powerful VR solutions capable of total immersion, today announced that it has teamed up with Czech startup Precismo to streamline and simplify the digitizing of physical products for the virtual world. Unveiling at SIGGRAPH 2019, the two companies will demonstrate a prototype of how using the XTAL VR headset and proprietary 3D object scanning technology allows brands to quickly and cost-effectively digitize retail products, allowing customers to interact with them in virtual reality.

    The technology developed by Precismo allows brands to scan and digitize their products as 3D virtual models. This process ensures that the captured materials of the subject appear photorealistic and the materials are presented with their natural characteristics, like leather grains, textures and more, in digital form. Unlike ordinary 3D scanners, this new system is completely automated and time-optimized.

    This new proof-of-concept created by VRgineers and Precismo has many possible uses. Since it can digitize a large number of items efficiently and automatically, the system can be used in a wide range of industries that make use of AR and VR, such as marketing, e-commerce, quality control assurance, gaming and artificial intelligence. 

    Marek Polčák, co-founder and CEO of VRgineers, believes the system has the opportunity to benefit retail. “By combining a high-quality 3D scanner and a high-end VR headset, it is possible to digitize the retail process and prepare all marketing analytics in VR,” Polčák says. “Currently, if you want to know how consumers react to the different elements of a shopping experience, you have put them in front of an empty store, display goods, and monitor their reactions. With our approach, this entire process can be moved to the digital realm.”

    “Our goal as a company is to connect with the industry’s most exciting and influential brands to innovate unique products. Working with VRgineers was a simple decision because their XTAL HMD offers an incredibly precise viewing experience with a level of realism that is second-to-none,” says Mikolas Herskovic, CEO of Precismo. “Of all the VR headsets we have tried, XTAL came out on top and perfectly recreates the 3D models our technology creates.”

    VRgneers Demoing this Proof of Concept at Siggraph 2019

    The proof-of-concept created in collaboration with Precismo will be just one of the many exciting new experiences VRgineers will present at SIGGRAPH 2019, one of the world’s largest gatherings of researchers, artists and practitioners of computer graphics and interactive techniques. 

    VRgineers’ XTAL VR system will be empowering other VR/MR demonstrations at SIGGRAPH 2019. Another exciting showcase of the XTAL VR system will be the Fata Morgana demonstration at the Pocket Virtuality booth. “This technology uses two worlds – augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR). Specifically, in the case of AR, it works with a Hololens headset from Microsoft, which can display virtual objects through a transparent display over the real world. At the same time, thanks to cameras and sensors, it is able to record the real world,” says VRgineers sales director Kristian Gambiraza. Pocket Virtuality can capture a physical environment and digitize it. With built-in memory, it transfers information to a server or cloud after the headset is connected to Wi-Fi. From there, the digitized real world is transmitted to the recipient who is wearing the XTAL VR headset.

    VRgineers Reveals Augmented Reality Module Prototype That Makes XTAL the First Enterprise Mixed Reality Headset Capable of Total Immersion

    Featuring Wide-Angle Camera Sensors, the new AR module for XTAL allows users to see their actual hands interact with real physical objects in virtual reality

    Prague, May 27, 2019 – VRgineers, today announced a new lightweight augmented reality vision and tracking module for its industry-leading XTAL VR headset, making XTAL the most advanced mixed reality (MR) system ever created, and the only enterprise-grade MR system capable of total immersion. Weighing in at only 42 grams, VRgineers’ new augmented reality module features high-quality camera sensors with wide lenses for a natural and immersive 360-degree field-of-view, and adds hand tracking, inside out tracking, and virtual and augmented reality switching to XTAL’s broad list of capabilities.

    For the first time ever, XTAL customers can see their own hands interact with real objects in the virtual world!

    The first market segments to benefit from the new AR module, are automotive and aerospace. “The fascinating thing is that we are building the software system that allows you to combine the best functions and capabilities of AR with the VR world,” said Marek Polcak, VRgineers Co-Founder. ”With our new module and SDK, AR and VR developers will be able to flawlessly combine real physical objects, including their own hands, with virtual reality.”

    Currently, XTAL utilizes state-of-the-art LEAP Motion tracking that allows customers to utilize gesture control and hand tracking in their VR applications. VRgineers’ new module maintains the benefits afforded by the LEAP Motion system for purely VR applications, but expands upon those features for mixed reality applications by combining elements of the physical and virtual world into an immersive, natural experience. With VRgineers’ new AR module, XTAL users will be able to experience natural hands-on interaction with real-world things, like fighter jet cockpits or vehicle dashboard prototypes, while a realistic virtual world is created around them and the physical objects.

    One of the most unique features afforded by the new AR module prototype for XTAL is inside out tracking, which is a method of positional tracking commonly used in virtual reality technologies, specifically for tracking the position of head-mounted displays (HMDs) and motion controller accessories. It differentiates itself from outside-in tracking by the location of the cameras and other sensors that are used to determine objects’ positions in space. With inside-out positional tracking, the sensors are located on the device being tracked, whereas outside-in tracking places the sensors at stationary external locations.

    Why have inside-out tracking?

    Inside-out tracking technology allows XTAL to provide an impressive AR experience in all environments, even those with limited space, such as in a simulator or cockpit. However, VRgineers hasn’t written-off outside-in tracking. In fact, VRgineers will allow data fusion of both tracking methods in order to maximize positional accuracy in large studios or HoloDeck environments.

    Partners that have been conducting ongoing research and development with VRgineers, will be among the first to gain access to beta version of VRgineers’ new AR module for XTAL later this year. Those partners will contain mix of companies from aerospace, automotive and simulation market segments and will have the unique opportunity to be a part of the company’s expanded testing, helping to further enhance the performance and capabilities of the XTAL system.

    Any company that would like to become part of the the XTAL beta program or believes that their business can benefit from the capabilities afforded by lifelike VR or MR applications, is encouraged to contact VRgineers at

    Use Case

    The pilot in an aircraft, helicopter or in a car needs to achieve the highest possible authenticity/credibility/immersion for training. The XTAL headset offers high-quality images across a wide range of FOVs, which is extremely important for the perception of the space / overall picture. However, thanks to the camera module, it will also be possible to display a real cockpit with real hands, and to connect real stickers, steering wheel and all switchings with the virtual environment. Thanks to this, pilots will have a real haptic feedback and a perfect visual.
